Jstn31eod*wfd 540 IIILES - OS THE - UNION Pacific Railroad Running Jf eat from Omaha, Across the Continent, ARE NOW COMPLETE!!, THE TRACK BLIND LAID AND TRAINS RUN NING Wi(bill Ten Miles of tbe Summit of the Rooky Mountains. The remaining ten miles will be finished as soon as the weather permit, thojroad-bed to be sufficiently packed to receive tbe rails. The work contlnnes to be pushed forward in the rock cuttings on the wear, ern slope with unabated energy, and a much larger lorce will be employed during the current year than ever before. The pro«i«ct that the whole Grand Line to the Pacific Will be Completed in 1970, Wa> never better. Tte means so tar provided for instruction has proved ample, and there Is no lack ol funds for the most vigorous prosecution of the en terprise. These means are divided Into four classes: 1.— UNITED STATES BONDS, Hiving thirty years to run, and beating sU per cent, currency interest, at ihe rate of *16,000 per mile Sir 5i7 mile, on the Plains; then at the rate of' $46,000 per mile lor 110 tnlle» thrjuga the Rocky Meuntaius; then at tte rate of $32,000 per tulle tor the .remaining dlstnnce, for which the United States takes a second **en ns security. The interest on these bonds Is paid by the t'nlted States Government, which also pays the Company one-halt' the amount of Its bills in meney lor transporuting It* Height, troops, mails. &c. The remaining ball' of these lulls Is placed to the Company’s credit, and forms a slaking lnnd which may finally discharge the whole amount ol j this lien. 9-FIRST MORTGAGE BONDS By Its charter the Company Is permitted to Issue Its own First Mortgage Bonds to the same amount as the Bonds issued by the government, and tto more, and only aj toe rood progreesee. The Trustees tor the Bondholders, are the Hon. E. D. Morgan, U. S. Senator from New Fork, and the Hon. Oakes Ames, member ot the U. S. House ol Representatives, who are responsible for the delivery of these Bonds to the Company in accordance with the terms of the law. .3— THE LAND GRANT. The Union Pacific KfUlroiul Compaq ban a land krant or absolute donation from the government of 12,860 acre9 to tb»* mile on the line of the road, which will not be worth lean than $1.50 per acre, at the low est valuation. 4— THE CAPITAL STOCK. The aiuhorlied capital of the Union Pacific Rati j road Company Is $100,000,000, ol which over *6,100,- ] 000 have been j.aid on the wor k already done. THE Means Sufficient to Build the Bond. Contracts for the entire work fit building 914 miles of tlrst-clas* railroad west troxn Omaha, comprising much of the most difficult mountain work, and em bracing every expense except surveying, have been made wiih responsible parties (who have already fin ished over &40 mile*), at the average rate of sixty eight thousand and fifty-eight dollars ($88,058) per mile. This prf'e includes all necessary shops lor construe lion and Tepaiis of cars, depot*, stations, and all other incidental buildings, and also locomo tives, passenger, baggage, and freight cars, and oth er requisite rolling stock, to an amount that shall not be less than $3,000 per mile, Allot ing the cost of the remaining one hundred and eighty-six of the eleven hundred miles assumed to be built by the Union Pacific Company to be $90,000 per mile, The l oial Coal ef eleven Hundred Mile* will be a* folios* s t 914 miles, at 868,058 $6420fi,ul2 186 miles, at 000, 16,748,000 Add discounts or. bonds, sanvys, A**, 4,500,000 Ainouut, $83,443,012 As the C 8 Bona* are rqu^i.to money, and the Company** own hirst .Mortgage Bonds have a ready market, we have as the Available Cash Resource* to a ttuildiug Kleven Hand red Mile* * U 8, Bauds. $°9^2R,(00 First jNiorigug*; Bonds. 29,3^8,000 Capital Stock paid in on the work ru»w done,8,300,000 Land <4rant, 14,080,000 acres, at $1.30 per nr-e, 21420,000 Total, ><*,278.000 The Company have ample iae.litles for supplying any deficiency that may arise In means ibr construc tion. This mav be done wholly or in pan by addl dltional subscriptions to the capital stock. Earnings of the Company. At present, tl.eproius ot the Company are derived only from lie local trail.?, but tbla is already much more than sufficient to pay the interest on all the Bond® tin Company can ? sue, If not another mile were bnlh. It is not doubted that whan the road is completed the through traffic, of the only lino con neetihg the Atlantic and Pacific States wt 1 be large beyond precedent-, and, as there will be no compe tition, it can always bo done ai profitable xaies. it will be noticed that the Union Pacific Railroad 1 , «u fact, a Government Work, built under the su pervision of (loveiumenl officers, and to a large ax tent with Government money, and that its bonds are issued under Government direction. It is be lieved that no .similar security is go . arefolly guard ed, and certainly no other is based npon a larger or more valuable property. A« the Comp ny*s First Mortgage Bonds aie offered for the present at OO CT8.JO.Sf TICK DOLLAR, they axe the cheapest security In the market, being more than 13 per cent, lower than U. S. Storks. They pay Six Per Cent, in Gold! or over 5TINE PER CENT, upon the invest ment, and have thirty years to run before maturity. Subscriptions will be received in Portland by 8 If A .V ,1- BARRETT, NO. 13 EXCHAttRE STREET, and In N»*w York at the Company's Office, No. 20 Nassau Street, and by CONTINENTAL NATIONAL BANK, No. 7 Nas sau Street. CLARK, DODGE & CO., Bankers No. 31 Wall Street. JOHN J. CISCO & ,>ON, Bankers* No. 33 Wall Street. HENRY CLEWS <fc CO., Bankers, No. *2 Wal Street. And by the Company's advertised Agent* through out tlnxUrilted States. Remittances should be made in drafts or ether funds par In New York, and the bonds wlil be sent free ol charge by x'efurn express.

When the vise-ilke pinches of taxation be gan to be felt, after ti e ebb of the great war iicnzy that made the people for a time insen sible to taxation or death itself, both parties began to give assurances of their special in terest iu and entire devotion to retrenchment and economy. Time enough has already elapsed to test the sincerity ol' those profes sions on either side. The two parties may now walk up to the tribunal with which rests final jurisdiction In the matter and pass in their accounts. The Issue was fairly made, and the parly that is tbunddelinquent can ex pect no mercy. It were better such a party had never aspired to come down that river of saline properties which by acruel pleasantry is supposed to afford refuge to defeated politi cians. First let the Republicans be called. Most likely they will be found guilty, They were at the outset less blatant in their protesta tions than their opponents. Some of them had pen-knives in their pockets, to begin with, surreptitiously obtained under the name ol “stationery.•’ Conscious 0f the pen knives and other little peculations, and conscious, too, that the destiny of the nation in things fiscal was wholly In their hands, they promis ed with some diffidence. Yet methiuks they come into court with some assurance, now that the day of trial has arrived. But the grand inquest Is In session ard we shall see. The testimony in favor of the Republicans is this: They have taken measures to reduce the aimy and navy,so as to make them acom paratively small police forces. There ate three times as many special constables iu the city ol London as there are meu in the army of the l cited States. Forty three thousand tnen in all branches of the service! Bank rupt Austria has 1200,000; bankrupt Italy has 1,000,000; Russia has l,40u,000; the North GermanjConfedcratlon has 1,300,000; France has 1200.O00. All of these nations, with the exception ol Germany, are embarrassed by debts amounting In some instances to more per capita than our own. There is not mere ly business depression among the people of those conn Lies, there is starvation. Herein may.be seen the beauty of republican institu tions and of a Republican administration. And the navy, too, is made subject to the 1 _A 1 _ I same mexorame law ol retrenchment A bill has just passed Congress directing the sale of all but twenty of our forty three iron clails. Old Admiral Fairagut must rely upon bis favorite “woodeu walls" hereafter in ex ecuting his duty as chief of the marine police. Truly the ease of this alleged culprit is bright ening, and ’tis ten to one he gets off scot free. But this is not all—no, not half. When Congress assembled In November the com mittee on ways and means adopted as the basis ol their deliberations in the formation of a new tax-bill tlie determination that the total amount to be derived from internal rev enue should not exceed *100,000,000. The House committee on appropriations assumed the same basis in their deliberations. In consequence of this harmony of opinion be tween the two committees the knife has been applied in a most merciless manner to the es timates of beads of departments. Nothing has been spared. The army, the navy, the civil service and all departments and bureaus of the government have been put. on short pe cuniary rations.. Everything but the sacred debt to the soldiers and sailors aud the debt to the public creditor has felt the influem-e of the new economical revival. These may not be jtouched without burying tne common wealth under such depth of Infamy as would blast it forever. It now looks as if ibc pris oner at the liar would uoi only “go without day," but teceive a vote of thanks. But wait; there is more testimony. The State department has been buying real estate in vacation. The people can't afford to pay for it. So the House hesitates on Alaska and puts its foot down on St. Thomas. If the na tional faith Li involved in the matter of pay ing tor the Arctic region. it will be done, hot not otherwise. It Is nren- —mat Den —--■» umsnaury her wares to another mar ket. Mr. Waxbburne of Illinois, the father- of •he House, has Just carried a bill through that body, the importance of w hich as a retrench ment measure has partially escaped public at tention. It foibids the payment of war claims out of the public treasury without the exer cise of every possible precaution against fraud. Here is a serious leak stopped. The facility with which all sorts of trumped-up accounts were settled at the treasury before the passage of that act was proving a serious matter. As a timber jeoof of the thrift and finan cial wisdom of the party of moral ideas, the condition of the State debts may be referred to. Iowa is known to he entirely out of debt. Iudlana has paid fifty per cent, of hers. The financial prosperity of Sutes is found to be In almost every case iu direct tatio to the purity of her politics fr-otu copperheadisiu. Where that offshoot of Democracy is in the ascendant, the debi is usually a correspond ingly large per cent, of the valuation. Ken tucky, Maryland and New York city are evi dences of that fact. It’s no use to continue this trial. The case Is clearly to be decided In favor ot the accus ed. The other pariy, however, has not a par ticle of evidence to adduce in its favor. It has originated nothing but clamor. It has not even seconded the retrenchment move ments In which others have taken the Initia tive. It come out strong on the increase of salaries tor members of Congress. It lias signalized it* restoration to power iu the New York legislature by doubling the expen ses of the lower house. Democrats are ad mirable theoretical economists, but practic ally they fall as fat- short as Tupper does in poetry. Hri.i. KfN' Rnmx.-Gen. McAllister, of the First New Jersey Brigade, gives the. fol lowing amusing account ol the manner in which William H. Bussell, who furnlshel the London Times such an exaggerated account of the panic at the first battle of Bull Run, fled from the field: A civilian, with a broad-brimmed liar, Li* face pale as death, came riding down the road at a furious rate. I ordered hltn to halt. He very much agitated and frightened, said, “1 am a civilian, and must pass ou." “No, vou can't pass,” 1 replied; “my orders are to stop every body.” He then said, “X am a hearer of dis patches to Washington, and it is Imperative that I should go on.” “Vou cannot pass un til this panic is stopped; every oue who passes helps to increase the stampede,” was mv an swer. “Here are my papers, look at them,” at the same time pulling them out ot his pocket. 1 replied: “No time to examine papers row; wait till we are through with this iob. and we will consider your case.” He again implored me, in pitiful tones, to let him through, whereupon I said: “There is my commander, go to him,” pointing to Colonel Montgomery. He went to Colonel Montgomery, and had some conversation with him; when Mont gomery, disgusted with the man’s cowardice, raising himself up in the saddle, cried at the tojp of his voice, “Let that wan go!" X did so, when the stranger put spurs to his horse, and made the very scones «l the pike lly behind him. That man was uo oilier than Russell, the correspondent of the London Time-. DeatKrmir CuadMsiri. Mr. Pendleton’s friends, we ieani, are al ready sure of unanimous delegations to the Democratic National Convention trom the Slates of Ohio. Iudiaua. Illinois. Kentucky. West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and Ne braska ; while, as yet it Ls not known that the Democrats of a single State have express ed an adverse preference. Mr. Johnson’s office-holders are meditating a “People's Con vention,” to present their man: which is sav ing, in effect, that ibey give up the Democratic Convention as hopeless. An attempt lo break the Pendleton column in the West by starting Senator Hendricks of Indians as a candidate, has achieved uo palpable sueeess. so far as we have beard; yet we believe it U not abandoned. The talk this way ol Com modore Vanderbilt means, of course,opposi tion lo Pendleton; what more it means wc have not yet learned. The Commodore is 14 years old, and a great deal too shrewd to con sent to be a candidate tor any office on earth. —Xeic York Tribune. HOW THE BBPCBI.lt AN- SUCCEEDED IX Ohio.—From two Western papers we lake tlie following explanations in regard to the gicai Republican victory In the Sill Ohio d!s tiiet. The Cleveland Leader, speak* oi lien. Beatty’s success thus: First of all, ihe Republicans 01 the district generally, sinking all‘local claims and person al interests, endeavored to -elect as their can didate ihfir bed and most popular man. In choosing Gen. Beattv, they were influenced by the highest and worthiest motives that govern men. And then thtre was a most eommendahle acquiescence in the nomination on the part of all the gentleman whose names had been mentioned tor the honor, end cone labored more zealously in the cause than Gen. Beatty's most formidable competitor* in the <-onveutiou. Huceess is due, also, to the far: , t‘J, town ami township of the li'Htrf"! wa* thorovyhly owl fojsttOtflt(rolto oi ‘iitui red. And so admirable was the organ ization that a poll ol the vote of the District, some days prior to the election, made Beall vV majority eight hand red, which is but little inodiucd by the official result. In short the Republicans lelt fhar the eyes of ihe Union were upon them. for thev were opening the great campaign of UMJ. ‘ They fought as uiie ‘•oidlais, who realized the importance of rout ing the enemy in the first onslaught. The following is horn tbe Cincinnati Com mercial: Other thine? being equal,a tcry lame ma jority ol tlie people of Ohio preier -. Republi can ton Democrat. This is the lesson taught by the Eighth Congressional District election.' Both candidates were ciiuens well esteemed. Both had seen military service during the war on the same side, anil both were called home by private business before the war was over. Gen. Beattv served for a longer period and with greater distinction than Col. Bums, but this Ian had uo perceptible inUueace up on the election. ’lbe only points about which the candidate a differed seriously were as to the comparative responsibility of the Demo cratic and Repulilican parties in bringing on the war. and tbe political rights of conquered reliefs. This was the whole debatable ground, and it was unfruitful Tbe voters in the Eighth District had, some time ago. settled their convictions as to the origin or the war, and. In the absence of a well defined policy of reconstruction by Congress, Republicans could hardly be expected, in their private capacity, to rush in and commit themselves. Naw H.\Mf>saj»g >ob Hamlin.—Yesterday meriting we published an extraet from one of tire leading papers of the West in which Hon. Hannibal Hamlin oi this State was spoken ol as a candidate for the V ics Presidenty who would be mo.-t acceptable to Western voters. For a week past the tone of oar exchanges has indicated that the movement in tavoi of Ham lin for Vice.President is becoming almost as general as that for Grant as President. The CouconlJtN. H.) Monitor of ^attirdayliuruisliw additional proof of the strength and scope of this sentiment, as will be seen from the follow ing editorial from its columns: We know nol if this movement has the sanc tion oi Mr. Hamlin himself, but we do know it to be a tlrinv eminently lit to be done, and that nothing would better suit tbe Republi cans of New Hampshire, and we believe we can say of New England. The dropping Mi. Hamlin Irom tbe Lincoln ticket in I8fi4, was one ol those blunders which are worse than a crime. And the people so felt it at ihe time. Iiow that feeling has been deepened by sub sequent events, and especially by the course of the men for whom he was set aside, we need not say. Suffice that every loval man in the country regrets the mistake,and the coun try itself is still suffering tbe penalty of it. Had Hannibal Hamlin been re-elected Vice President, President Liu. oln would never, in all human probability bavejbeen assassinated. And ii he had, the nation would have still had a chief magistrate faithful to the great principles for which Lincoln lived and died. Tlie Union would have been long since restor ed, and peace and prosperity would to-dav reign in all parts of our land" We may not owe any atonement to Mr. Ham lin fo: the blunder of lbdt, but do we uut owe it to ourselves? Do we not owe it to the coun try? Would not his re-nomination and re-elec tion in 18fi8 be at ouco indemnity for the pit-1 and security for the future? We shall search in vain for a man who ha- bceu truer to Re publican principles. Few meu in the couutiy have had longer experience in public life, and do man bar a reputation more above reproach Bold, sagacious and faithful to every trust, he never turned his back on a duty or a friend. The trusted friend and counsellor of the la mented Lincoln through all tbe trials and perils that tried all souls, he would be invalu able to General Grant in tbe times to come, whieh may he scarcely less perilous and trying! And should the country be again visited with the calamity which has thrice befallen ii.. of losing its chosen Chief.no living man doubts that in Hannibal Hamlin it would still have a President faithful to the country, faithftil to liberty, and faithful to the party which elected him. The sad experience of tile past ought to teach the Republican party and the country that the character of a Vice' President is not less important than that of Presideni. Almost ail the troubles which have come upou the country, are traceable directly or indirortly to tbe mistake ot putting unfit,unknown aud un tried men upon the ticket for Vice President n with the lessons already ‘-•oo.v us, We com ra't antmner nar wuuaer, the country ought to take it os evidence of our incapacity, and nev er trust us wiih the government again. Against this, Hannibal Hamlin’s name would he a guaranty at tbe start. The loyal heart of the nation wonld open to him at olive. Tbe country would not have to be told who or what sort of a man he is. It has known him, trusted biui and was not betrayed. It knows that all its interests, from the highest to tbe lowest, would be sine in bis hands. With General Grant, coming lrom Illinois, for PI. s Ident, tho Vic- Presidency will, as a matter of course, be conceded to the East. Can we pre sent * better man than Hannibal, Hamlin. A Maine Man in' the East.—It is tiding that the Orientals should have seine one among them beside* “Elder Adams” as a rep resentative of New England. “Carleton”. of the Boston Journal in bis journey around the world strayed into the Turkish village of Be leck, on the banks of the Bosphorus, where lie found a Maiue man occupying the position ot T resident ol Robert college founded by an American of that name many years ago Af ter giving a brief sketch of Mr. Robert, and of the institution which bears hi? name, ‘"Carte toa” save: The President ol ihe College, Kev. Cyrus Hamlin, enters the room. His is an elastic step, although lie has seen more than httv years,! judge. A mau of medium stature, spare, thin cheeks, bald head, penetrating eye, wide forehead, whiskers closely cropped, bitick coat buttoned fo the chin, who grasps your hand warmly. He is from Maine, and a rela tive of Hon. Hannibal Hamlin. It is not ful some praise when I say that ’.here »re iew men living who are endowed with greater ex ecutive capacity and energy. He has been It. re nearly iliir;y years, and the history of His life would be a’ rich contri bution to biographical literature, illustrating the versatility of his genius, tireless energy, conquest of difficulties, ability like that of Hheridau at Winchester, to wring victory horn defeat, and like Grant tt Vicksburg, when foiled at one point to carry the war info the country of the euemy at another. Greek and Armenian patriarchs, Latin priests, Turk ish dervishes and pashas, alike have used their best endeavors to break up his schools and drive him from the country, but have been baf fled in all tiicir designs. If' we were to get a history of what he has dot e, we should ace him working as a carpen ter, as blacksmith.joiner, turning his hand to all trades, because he could not obtain com petent workmen, teaching school, preaehirg, analyzing ores for the Turkish Government, setting up a grist mill, building a bakery, snn plying the whole British Government with bread during lire Crimean war, earning thou sands of dollars by the operation, every cent ! of which has boen donated to missionary pur poses arid now at the head ot the best college in rhe East—a self supporting inst tut ion. with eighty-eight students, with scores apply for admission who must be turned away ’ol want of accommodation. There are few men who have undrgonu greater trials. Ho has gone through deep waters, deep enough and dark enough to have overwhelmed him, had he not been sustained by an unfaltering trust ;u Gcd. It was proposed at oue period of the war to make Ur. Hamlin Commissary General for the Init-d States—a recognition of his energy and abili ty and executive force. Through the dormitories first we go with Ur. HamliD. Soiling neat rooms, rows of ir«u bed steads, clean sheets, everything in order. We enter the school room and behold the young men and lads—thirteen nationalities.* The room is the great bauquetiug ball ot the palace, fretted ceiling, Greek painting as iu the room beneath, blackboards, maps and charts on the walls, schnis>s roeitiugin English.giving sie lutions to arithmetical problems and grammati cal analysis, fluently and correctly. All of the students acquire tue English ami kreach in addition to their native tongue. Stuh a mul tiplicity of languages involves a large outlay for teachers, hut the college is self-supporting and has already obtained a high reputation throughout the Turkish Empire. The Gieek, Armenian and Bulgarian students .number about sixty, and these three nationalities are nearly equally divided. There is one Ameri can, oue English, several French, Italians. 8wies, Germans,Turks, Jews and Albanians. Quite a library ha« been collected, of Ktiuli-U and American books, as well as of oilier lan guages. The war books published since the rebellion are eagerly devoured bv these b ,vs of Ills- Eastern world. A beautiful site containing seven acres on the bill overlooking the Bosphorus has been por chased, and permission to build was once granted in 1 Hrtff. Ur. Hamlin made prepara tions and was at it largeoutiay of money when suddenly the permission was revoked. The question has therefore become out to be taken upby the Cnited States Government. Mr. Seward can settle it bv a stroke of til" pen, by doiuc what the Beigiau Government has re cently done for a citizen of that wuntry de manding pe, mission to go on or redress lot dam age!. The college has a fund in New » ork ot M 20,000; if permission to build ta again accord ed, this insiitntiou,begun in weakness, wUl I be in pow«?r to accomplish great result* In this Eastern world. I Almost a Ghost.—The Boston Advertiser of yesterday tells the following story of a sol nation in E;ist Boston: Yesterday afternoon accounts of a remarka ble e-o of trance were prevalent in East Bo | ion. The stories were various,and some bor j dered ru the marvellous and supernatural. AU | agreed, however, that the subject was a pen [ tie man who wa- tmpposad to have died m New York, on Monday last, and whose body tv .- received by his family, residing in East Boston. Friday was set as the time for ths funeral, but when the coffin was opened on that day. the appearance of the body was such 1 that <.h j family believed that vitality remained. At this (mint the stories diverged. One rumor was that a physician was called and pronounc ed the opinion that the man was in a trance; another, that incisions had been made in the body from which blood flowed freely; a third, that the eyes had been seen to roll and stars, and the body to move on the couch it was laid upon; a tourth, that a spiritual medium had said that the soul had not left the body; while these startling rumors found a climax in lha report that a person passing the house had seen the body seated at a window, gazing into the street. The truth appears to be that the family wer»- led to believe that death had not occurred. A medical examination was made by several physicians, the man was pronounced dead, and the family assented to his burial. The ftincrol will take place on Tuesday.
